The increasing number of End-of-Life-Vehicles (ELVs) as well as the increasing use of plastic parts in vehicles is leading to an ever increasing burden on the environment (caused by waste). Not only ELVs but also manufacture and use of vehicles gives rise to waste. Apart from the avoidance of waste this problem can only be solved by the continuous development of dismantling and recycling technologies as well as by the establishment of an economic market for this. To guarantee this a neutral supervision of the processes is necessary as well as the engagement of the automotive industry and possibly the introduction of new legal requirements. The neutral supervision offers, therefore, an effective contribution to a clean, environmentally conscious and safe future.
